Corporate Social Responsibility
Our CSR programme is an integral part of our strategy; whether encouraging employee engagement, reducing resource usecand costs, or enabling growth by supporting new business and nurturing future talent.
We continually monitor and measure our performance in four key areas; Environment, Employability, Engagement and Enterprise.
Improving the way we manage our waste, reduce energy use and reuse of materials. We’re committed to reducing waste throughout our organisation.
- 76% of our waste is diverted from landfill and recycled
- 100% of IT and telephony waste is diverted from landfill and recycled
We are continually looking to reduce our carbon footprint. Last year, we delivered a 6% reduction in our energy consumption and ran a ‘No Time to Waste’ Campaign, aimed at changing attitudes toward energy consumption and waste management throughout the company.
Increasing the skills of our current and future workforce. Last year our graduates delivered employability workshops to over 200 students within our local communities.
We also continue to work with Making the Leap, a social mobility and youth charity, which runs careers education programmes for schools and delivers training that prepares young adults for job opportunities.
Continuing to make Vaultex an employer of choice. Our people are always eager to support our local communities and charities and are encouraged to make a difference in any way they can. This year, 41 of our employees volunteered in the communities we operate in.Our matched-funding programme helps our people boost the funds that they raise for the causes that matter to them most. In 2015/16 we match funded £20,911 raised by our employees for their chosen charities. We also held a ‘Make a Difference Month’ to raise funds in aid of Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) a charity chosen by one of our cashiers, who in February lost his 11-year-old son to a sudden cardiac condition.
Seeking to support programmes which increase understanding of finance and the economy. We promote CSR as an integral part of the business through our CSR panel of stakeholders. Together, we work with our external partners and customers to ensure our CSR strategy thrives in all aspects of our day to day operations and supports new business bids.
